Rick Cisario

Rick Cisario is an Italian Jew who graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Some have money on the mind; Rick has a lesion on his brain. Doctors say it causes seizures, but Rick thinks it makes him seize the day. Rick has developed pilots with Party Over Here (Lonely Island) and CBS studios; sadly, they were deemed too brilliant to air. His Facebook Watch VR short premiered at SXSW. His feature OLD PALS is in development with Debbie Liebling and Corporate Witchcraft, with Wendey Stanzler attached to direct. He was dropped by CAA, but we’ll call it mutual.
